Why should they if Microsoft gave them permission to use Mechwarrior license?

"Jordan Weisman, founder of Smith & Tinker and previously founder of the disbanded FASA Corporation which worked on the MechWarrior series, negotiated the license back from Microsoft after the software giant left the property idle for years, since their last foray with the MechAssault series." Source

In other words Microsoft no longer has the power to give them permission.

Um there was another Mechwarrior game announced and some gameplay shown about 5 months ago I believe.

This. That's what I meant by Smith & Tinker (apologies for calling it Tinker & Smith).

"On September 3, 2009, shortly after posting preview videos and images of the game, IGN was issued a cease and desist order by Harmony Gold USA (owners of the Robotech franchise), citing copyright infringement." Source

If Smith & Tinker, the legal owners of the MechWarrior license, obtains a cease and desist from Harmony Gold USA, then it's only a matter of time before either Smith & Tinker or Harmony Gold USA take notice of this mod and initiate action. The mod team could avoid this by perhaps calling it something else. But this doesn't negate the real problem of the mechs looking like mechs from the Battletech or Robotech universes.
